Just trying to understand the decocking procedure. My question is if you have a weapon with manual safety and safely lower the hammer on a round would at that point it then be in the same carry condition as one with a decocker? Is it only the safety factor of of lowering the hammer or is there more that I am missing:confused:

Manually lowering the hammer will bypass any firing-pin block (drop safety).

What handgun model are you inquiring about? Specifics would help in answerring your question.

Decocking brings it back to that first DA shot.
To answer your question: yes
